The clouds looming here over Boston’s financial district seem to me to portend a coming period of internal strife in this country where we painfully come to grips with who we are as a nation. I don’t mean to be overly pessimistic here, but I find myself somewhat afraid of the almost hateful negativity loose in our current political dialog. I hope the better angels of our nature can lead us to a realization that the democratic ideas that our country are founded on are threatened and it’s time for a sober reassessment of who we are as a people.
PS I like this photograph too. Completely apart from all the gloom above. It was taken almost by accident since I was walking the other way and just happened to turn around to catch this view.
